Some basic knowledge in finance, investing and economics might be beneficial.


In this course, you will learn about real estate investing in an institutional context, which means from the perspective of a private equity fund, pension fund or a developer.

Real estate investing is both an art and a science. To understand real estate and be a great real estate investor, you need to learn multiple disciplines, such as finance, economics, and politics.

This course covers the multi-disciplinary and financial aspects of real estate investing (debt financing, deal structuring, financial modelling, transaction execution, portfolio concepts) and also regeneration and placemaking.

Because at the end of the day, real estate is all about creating beautiful places that people like to live and work in. Buildings can transform lives and bring communities together.

So being an excellent real estate investor is not just about crunching the numbers but about appreciating aesthetics, history, and heritage. It's also about understanding communities, what people want and need.

Andy Warhol said: "Being good in business is the most fascinating kind of art. Making money is art and working is art, and good business is the best art".
